Tyne and Wear HER(5700): Jesmond Dene, Sluice gate on waterfall - Details
Jesmond Dene, Sluice gate on waterfall
Water Supply and Drainage
Water Regulation Installation
Sluice gate on artifically created waterfall (HER 5698). Leads to a tunnel under the rocks. Exits at the side of the waterfall. Ingenious method of "switching off" the water supply to the main waterfall to allow the water to run through the tunnel and exit down the side of the waterfall instead.
